2020 began with exciting news! I was invited to be a part of a super talented design team for Lisa Horton Crafts. Many of you will know Lisa through her work with Creative Expressions and now she has stepped out on her own. I am thrilled to be a part of Lisa’s new journey.
Before Lisa’s first show on Create and Craft TV (on the 20th January): I was lucky to receive some brand new products to play with.
Today I should like to share a few of the samples I made for Lisa’s first shows using the Daisy Burst stamps and cutting dies.
Card 1 – Daisy Burst Wreath
I began by stamping and die cutting several flowers in pale yellow. Then (using a stamping platform) I stamped a circle of daisies in pale blue. Next I stamped a sentiment using the very useful Ticker Phrases stamps. To complete the card, I placed the yellow cut out daises in between the blue stamped out daisies and added a co-ordinating pearls. The wreath was then mounted on the new Bali papers and yes I did gut the centre!

Card 2 Daisy Burst Flourish Stamp.
Within the Daisy Burst stamp set is a sizeable flourish stamp. I stamped it out 3 times (using black Versafine Clair ink) before framing a chosen part of the image. This was die cut using a square. All three squares were then mounted up onto a vibrant green strip of paper, then a black strip and stuck onto the card blank along with a Ticker Phrases sentiment.
Look how well the stamps print out. 🙂
Card 3 – Retro Gatefold.
I love using rich orange and black together. I think it reminds me of my childhood in the 1970s.
I am going to show you the inside of this gatefold card first which is stamped using the Daisy Burst flourish stamp (as seen above) with orange ink. Next I used the individual Daisy Burst stamps to stamp over the flourish with black ink. A Ticker Tape Phrase sentiment was then added to complete the card.
Next I pulled out one of the funky new stencils to play with. This design is called : Pennies in a Link – and I created my own background paper, by simply stencilling and stamping. I wanted the design to be bold so I sponged on two layers of the orange ink before taking one of the smallest daisy stamps and individually stamping each circle using black ink. It was worth it because I love the effect. This background sheet was then cut down to cover either side of the gatefold card.
To create the wrap around I die cut the Daisy Burst flourish die out twice (side by side) and inked it up with the same orange ink. Finally I adhered it to a long black strip which I carefully wrapped around the gatefold card before completing it all with one final Ticker Tape Phrase sentiment stamp.
By the time you read this post, Lisa’s new products will have launched and you will have seen the whole range. I really hope you enjoy creating with everything and don’t forget to share your makes on Lisa’s Facebook group. ” Crafting with Lisa Horton”.
